A closure on Interstate 90, both eastbound and westbound, is planned from Rapid City to the Wyoming state line beginning at 2 p.m. Mountain/3 p.m. Central today, according to the state Department of Transportation.

An earlier closure of I-90 from Chamberlain to Rapid City was made during the morning hours today. So, as of 2 p.m. Mountain/3 p.m. Central, I-90 will be closed from Chamberlain to Wyoming.

The Department of Transportation will continue to monitor the storm track. In addition to the extended I-90 closure, motorists are reminded that many no-travel advisories are in place on state highways throughout the central and western part of the state.

Secondary highways will also become impassable during the duration of this winter storm. Be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions with this complex storm system. Travel will be difficult to nearly impossible at times.
